I want to express a heartfelt THANK YOU for coming along with me in January as I shared my free videos, my free online masterclass, and all the news about my Success Breakthrough Workshop.
Whether you were moved by what I shared in the free trainings or decided to dive deeper with me in the course, I am grateful for you.
I am back to my ONE Morning Mindset email per week + today, I want to share a simple message that when you stop + take it in, will profoundly shift how you feel.
As actors + creative people, I know this to be true for many of us….
It’s so easy to look ahead + wish we were further along.
It’s so easy to let that job that you didn’t book, even though you rocked the audition, get you down.
It’s so easy to scroll through Instagram + see everyone’s best version of their life + feel like you’re missing out on something.
It’s so easy to let negative thoughts run your day + effect how you treat others.
It’s so easy to find fault within ourselves + those we love the most.
But today, I want you to pause. Today, I want you to take a moment and do this….. Yes, I want you to express radical appreciation for all you have done + who you have become.
Because when you look back and marvel at yourself + your life, moving forward becomes easier.
Because when you see each rejection as just part of the path to something even better, not getting the job becomes no big deal.
Because when you get excited for another’s success, you are that much closer to aligning with your own.
Because when you choose a more positive thought, you light up in a different way.
Because when you look for things to appreciate in yourself + others, more things like it reveal themselves.
So, pause. Breathe. Put the phone down. And give thanks for your journey so far. No really. Do it right now.
“Today, I express radical appreciation for all I have done + who I have become.”
You have no idea how close you are to so many wonderful experiences.
Radical appreciation will not only speed up the process, but it will also make getting to where you want to go way more fun.
Here’s to a week of expressing radical appreciation.
Leave a comment below + let me know what you’re appreciating in your life today!
I am appreciating you!
Love + Gratitude,
P.S. Want to take the guesswork out of meditation + visualization?
I’m excited to reveal “How To Radically Transform Your Acting Career.”
But first 3 quick announcements, as the past 3 weeks have been mind-blowing to watch so many actors jump start their breakthrough year + shed all kinds of limitations inside my “Virtual Party” of free online trainings. Amazing!
I’m going to keep it simple today, as I’ve spent the last 3 weeks watching brave + committed actors dive inward + take an honest look at what’s been stopping them from creating more success + happiness in their acting careers + their personal lives.
Here’s what I know to be true: To radically transform your career, you must first radically transform your inner game.
Yes, it all begins, by looking within.
Why? Well, real transformation can’t happen without conscious awareness…
Yes. When I acknowledge + accept, I can transform.
For most actors, it’s way easier to spend the day/month/year blaming their agents, weight, looks, age, lack of connections or number of auditions for their lack of results,
But what hundreds of actors uncovered in my Free Video Series, was that the actual act of blaming was the thing that was not only keeping them in victim mode, but was also the very thing that was keeping them stuck.
Once you realize that the #1 factor that determines your success, (more…)
In fact, this video is part of a brand new free 3-Part Training Series I put together for you called Success Breakthrough Secrets For Actors, where in the next 7 days, I will guide you to release whatever is blocking you, let go of limitation + align with what you REALLY want in 2018.
I’m giving you insider tips + actionable strategies to make this your best year yet
My holiday wish for you is that, in this moment. you realize you have so much to celebrate.
Today, I am celebrating the sacred space we share together as actors on this journey.
Today, I am looking back + celebrating the past year of Actor Inspiration.
It has been so rewarding knowing that whether I am feeling up or down, whether I booked the latest job or haven’t had an audition in weeks, I can share my heart, mind + soul with you here and it helps you on your journey.
In fact, one of my favorite comments to read after a blog post from an actor is, “This is exactly what I needed to hear today. I felt like you were talking directly to me.”
And in many ways, I am. Doing this work each week has helped me to feel a deep connection to those on a creative path – heart, mind + soul.
Below is a visual review of what we’ve uncovered together this past year.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It’s fun to play for a living, that’s for sure…but I had no idea how much this work of helping + inspiring other actors along the way, would end up helping + inspiring me.
Here’s to a year worth celebrating.
Feel free to leave a comment below + let me know which graphic speaks to you the most today.
Love + Gratitude,
Sending lots of love from my home to yours, today + always.

You play many roles in your life + they are all meaningful and valuable. “Actor” is only one of those roles, just as “what you’ve done” in your career this year is only one facet of the multi-faceted diamond that is you.
So whether you print this out + tape it to your bathroom mirror or keep the graphic on your phone, allow it to serve as a loving guide to end the year knowing that not only are you enough exactly as you are right now, but that you are a precious gift.
Treat yourself this way as the year comes to a close + you will start the New Year off in the right direction.
Pause and read this anytime you feel your inner critic try to define you, judge you or criticize you…
Here’s to a holiday season where you fill yourself up first with (more…)
I know this time of year can get busy + stressful. So I’m keeping it short + sweet today.
If you find yourself cranky, irritable, sad, or overwhelmed by all you have to do (or all you feel you haven’t done yet), here is my Holiday De-Stress List.
You’ll be amazed at what picking one thing on this list will do for your mental + emotional state. Keep in mind, this isn’t about covering up your feelings with a happy face sticker, or stuffing down your emotions with extra slices of pie.
It’s about taking the time to slow down + actually feel your feelings: acknowledge them, release them + let them be heard. (more…)
I BOOKED THE JOB! LISTENING TO CREATING POWERFUL AUDITIONS MADE A DIFFERENCE!
"Been listening to your "Creating Powerful Auditions" mp3 daily since purchasing about a week ago. Listened to it on the way to an audition...took a few moments before leaving my car to do the visualizations. I walked into the audition room feeling totally empowered, feeling light. I booked the job. I feel your album made a difference. Thank you, Wendy."
I'VE TURNED A SLOW STREAK INTO A BOOKING STREAK AND I FEEL REALLY EMPOWERED.
"Wendy is so generous with her knowledge and understanding of the deeper, inside work that goes into living a healthy, happy, well balanced actor life. Her daily inspirations mean so much to me...and I'm grateful for the custom guided meditation she wrote for me. I've turned a slow streak into a booking streak & I feel really empowered."
Community, iCarly, Good Luck Charlie
I BOOKED TWO ACTING GIGS IN THE SAME WEEK BECAUSE I HAD HER CD ON REPEAT!
"I listen to Wendy's guided meditations pretty much every chance I get. I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have her amazing voice in my ear keeping me empowered, inspired + in the right mental space to persevere day in and day out. I booked two acting gigs in the same week because I had Wendy's Creating Powerful Auditions album on repeat. Thank you WENDY for your positivity + light!"
YOUR CREATION IS...VERY POWERFUL, IT CALMED ME, PREPARED ME & FOCUSED ME + I BOOKED JOBS.
"Since I began using your guided meditations I have now, in only a few months, booked up an entire year of work. Your creation is truly a blessing + very powerful. Before every audition I have done recently I have listened to at least 3 of your tracks and it has calmed me, prepared me and focused me."
YOUR AFFIRMATIONS ALLOWED ME TO STEP OUT OF THE FEAR AND BE PRESENT IN THE ROOM.
"I just returned from an audition after listening to your guided meditations. Your affirmations allowed me to step out of the fear and be present in the room. As I waited for my audition I envisioned the session being successful and feeling empowered afterward. And it was and I did."
SINCE LISTENING TO YOUR GUIDED MEDITATIONS, I BOOKED 2 FEATURE FILMS
"I bought Creating Powerful Auditions and I listen to it every morning. "Empowering Myself" is my absolute favorite meditation, sometimes I put it on repeat until I fully and truly feel every declaration. Since I've been listening to your guided meditations I booked my first feature film + also recently booked the lead role in my first horror film. Thank you for coming into my life!”
